Have you discovered Elf on the Shelf? This is such a great Holiday Tradition!
The Elf on the Shelf kit arrives with a book and and Elf doll. The idea is that the Elf is sent to watch over the children in the house and see if they are being good for Santa. The Elf goes back to the North Pole each night to report back to Santa! Then in the morning the Elf flies back to a new place in the house.
The book is very good and the doll is so cute. Each child gets to name their own Elf. One of the rules of the Elf on the Shelf is that the child should not touch the elf. They can talk to the Elf but not touch it or the magic will be lost forever.
This has been a very cute Holiday tradition in our house for a long time. It is a lot of fun for the children to look for the Elf in the mornings when they wake up. It is a great way to keep the magic of Christmas going in the build up to the Holidays. At just $29.95 Shipped this is a great buy.
